589 Patients and a 100 day RSO Supply
Green Buddha did not start dispensing RSO until 2009, but from 2009 until our storefront was shuttered in April 2015, we gave away at least a 100 day supply of RSO to 589 patients. We never charged for RSO. I personally do not believe that RSO cures cancer, but if I was an oncology patient I would be flooding my body with cannabinoids, in addition to engaging in nutritional healing practices. As such I would try RSO, but I would want to make sure the product was clean of contaminants including pesticides. I would only make it with olive oil or ethanol.
Because of the ephemeral nature of RSO as medicine as a anti-cancer agent we at Green Buddha were uncomfortable taking money from those absolutely desperate to try the medication out. Our solution was to give at least a 100 day supply along with a thorough discussion of the need to grow medical cannabis for future RSO. About half our patients found a way to grow or to get someone to assist them with doing so. What weI also saw was that the more pro-active group - had a better response across the board to their oncological dilemma. There's a positive health effect that takes place when someone makes the decision to be more pro-active about their condition and grow for themselves. In the seven years we at Green Buddha gave oil away we did indeed see a few miraculous stories. But the profundity of minor stories of patients being in less pain, less fear, more at ease, more alert and more engaged in life are perhaps even more important.
